Convert Centimeters (cm) to Micrometers (μm)

Please provide the values below to convert from Centimeter (cm) to Micrometers (μm) and vice versa.

What is a Centimeter?

A Centimeter (abbreviation, cm) is a unit for measuring length in the metric system of measurement. A Centimeter is equal to one hundredth of a metre (1/100).

The centimetre remains a practical unit of length for many everyday measurements of the length of objects and small distances.

A meter consists of 100 centimeters, a square meter consists of 10,000 square centimeters, and a cubic meter consists of 1,000,000 cubic centimeters.

What is a Micrometer?

The Micrometre (SI symbol: μm) or micrometer (American spelling), also commonly known as a micron, is a unit of length equalling 1×10−6 meter (SI standard prefix "micro-" = 10−6); that is, one-millionth of a meter (or one-thousandth of a millimeter, 0.001 mm, or about 0.00004 inches).

A micrometer is a standard unit of measurement used to measure wavelengths of infrared radiations, sizes of biological cells and bacteria, and for grading wool by the diameter of the fibers.

The width of a single human hair ranges from approximately 20 to 200 μm. The longest human chromosome, chromosome 1, is approximately 10 μm in length.

How to Convert Centimeter to Micrometers?

To convert Centimeter to Micrometers, simply multiply the Centimeter value by 10000.

The formula used to calculate Centimeter to Micrometers -

d(cm) = d(μm) * 10000

The distance d in Micrometers (μm) is equal to the distance d in Centimeters (cm) multiplied by 10000.

How many Micrometers in a Centimeter

In simple terms, 1 cm is equal to 10000 μm.

The formula used is 1*10000 = 10000(μm)

How many Centimeters in a Micrometer

1 Micrometer is equal to 0.0001 Centimeters. So we can also say that there are 0.0001 Centimeters in a Micrometer.
